Startlingly intense, sweet-toned notes of ripe lemon, baker's chocolate and night flowers runs through the profile aroma through finish. Roundly rich acidity, plush mouthfeel. The baker's chocolate sweetens toward a crisp bittersweet chocolate in the cup and finish.
Koke is a particularly high-elevation district within the famed Yirgacheffe growing region, as well as the name of a wet mill or washing station in the area. In addition to his retail roasting operation, Aroma Roast Coffees, Simon Hsieh also runs Soaring Phoenix Trading, a business focused on high quality green single-origin coffees and commercial espresso blends.
